What color shoe to match with orange pants?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I've got:

Black captoe and loafers (but think that this would be too formal/halloween)
Brown double monks (AE Mora color)
Burgundy suede captoe
Stone derby
Tan loafers
Dark brown loafers
White loafers

I wish I had a shoe that were a softer brown, though I hate antiquing on shoes. Thanks.

Probably the dark brown loafers...weather, etc. Permitting.

this is a tough one. i guess it would also depend on how tapered the pants are and how they aesthetically are visually.
i would say something like a dark brown /mid brown. something that won't attract attention as the pants already do. black would just clash. i think white or tan nubuck look will make it more dandyish and i dont like that kind of look

Yeah I never understood the orange-black thing. The pants are pretty slim and incredibly soft and comfortable. I'm just sad that I don't wear it that much. It's a somewhat sedated orange, like pumpkin.

wear dark brown shoes to light brown. suede would go best, or a suede monk strap.

if you want to go italian/japanese look with it for flair (which cheesus you pull off) wear the burgundy suede.

+ 1 I would go with tan or brown (or blue) suede first, then calf brown

NIce bright red clown shoes, they match perfectly with the squeaky nose and wig you'll be needing to complete your circus look.

Ouch..This look is quite popular in Venice or Florence.

Horses for courses Bowtielover. Life will be boring if we did have the same sartorial tastes.

Ask yourself what would an iGent wear when he is released from prison.
